Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McMinnville District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum at McMinnville School District begins with students learning how to write. At first they learn the formation of letters but by fourth grade the students are able to create insightful stories. They get their inspiration from the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books. They continue to practice different types of writing as they progress through high school.
Science is experienced through many of the students’ senses at McMinnville School District. The younger students learn about insects in the classroom and then they create an Insect Museum using all of the knowledge that they acquired. Within the next couple of years students learn about construction of bridges before they take a Jetboat ride up the Willamette River where they can see examples of these bridges up close. This use of all of the senses continues as the students continue their science curriculum by studying biology, chemistry or ecology.

McMinnville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
McMinnville Schools combine the standards set by the Oregon Department of Education with the intelligence of their educators to put in place a top-notch curriculum. The standards are designed to help students progress through subject area learning by building upon prior knowledge. The essential knowledge of each subject is also integrated with its real world uses. This approach has been shown to help develop critical thinking and analytic skills necessary for post-secondary work.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Social Life In Fourth Grade
Fourth grade children begin to label each other with names such as athletic, popular or loser. Many desire to be popular, so they try to get along with others. They may also begin to develop values, prejudices and social pitfalls that had not been present before. They also develop levels of friendship, such as best friends and acquaintances. If a child is being excluded parents may want to step in to prevent isolation. Get to know the parents of other students and arrange social times. Teachers and guidance counselors also can provide ideas to help. Even though parents would like to step in to protect their child totally, there are also times to allow the child to find their own way in the smaller things.
